Twelfth Turbulent Nights

This comedy comes from Illyria to commemorate the Bard’s death

Featuring a woman surviving a shipwreck and disguising herself as her twin brother – while all the main characters find their love (temporarily) unrequited, this classic comedy of errors is among the more popular plays by Shakespeare. This version was first performed at the Midsummer Scene Festival at Dubrovnik, the heart of the play’s setting Illyria. With Helen Watkinson in the role of Viola and Cesario (her male alter ego), the audience is treated to a bizarre and unconventional love triangle. Better a witty fool, than a foolish wit!
